Another proposed work team charter...



The mission of the Technical Review Team is to continuously improve the
technical quality of specifications produced by the XMPP Standards
Foundation (XSF).


The Team achieves its mission primarily by reviewing XMPP Extension
Protocols (XEPs) at all stages in the XSF's standards process:

 * Before a "ProtoXEP" is accepted for publication by the XMPP Council
 * While a XEP is in the Experimental state
 * During a Last Call related to advancement of a specification from
Experimental to Draft (or Active)
 * While a XEP is in the Draft state
 * During a Call for Experience related to advancement of a
specification from Draft to Final
 * While a XEP is in the Final state

The Team is empowered to review XEPs on its own initiative. However, the
XMPP Council may also ask the Team to complete reviews to assist in its

Reviews produced by the Team are purely advisory and do not have any
official weight in the XSF's standards process, as defined by XEP-0001.

Reviews of XEPs are sent to the mailing list of the Standards SIG
(standards at xmpp.org) so that they form part of the public record of
comment on XEPs.

The Team may also complete reviews of documents outside the XEP series,
such as other XSF publications (e.g., white papers) and Internet-Drafts
produced by the IETF.


The Team is limited to elected members of the XSF. Participants are
recruited from among the XSF membership by the Team Lead and approved by
a simple majority of the existing team members.


The Team shall be a standing team with no end date.



Peter Saint-Andre
